Now that you've softened the floor, dressed the sofa, and decorated the table it's time to add inspiration to the walls. Consider creating your own works of art by taking photos of fall imagery and framing them in handsome wood or elegant metals. Most home furnishings stores carry a wide selection of framed prints landscapes, still lifes, Impressionist visions, abstract contemporaries. Special cards and notes you have received can also make a lovely statement as a framed memento. Don't forget children's artwork to add color and whimsy. By using ready-made, standard frames you can change out the work as often as new pieces are brought from school! You can also frame up a host of non-paper elements; try a family heirloom quilt hung on a wall, or a needlepoint scene crafted over several months, elegantly framed. Perhaps you have collectibles that would benefit from shadow boxing, like tickets and programs from shows or sports memorabilia. Make it personal and flexible to suit your mood and the changing seasons.
Swap out accessories. Like any great outfit, our rooms have accessories, too. Consider changing out a few for the season (not necessarily to fall-themed decor), with items you love, but might be storing away because don't have room to showcase year-round. Swap out accessories on your bookcases, coffee tables and sofa tables to create an instant new look. If you have a large art collection, consider changing out the main art in your rooms so you can enjoy your often-seen pieces.
Change your view. The view out of your windows changes with the season, so couldn't your window treatments change, too? If you have curtain panels consider changing them to a more seasonal color, whether retail or custom. You may also want to consider thermal panels that can help keep the cold out as the temperature drops. If you have blinds or roman shades you can do the same thing-update them with warmer, fall colors, or in either case, update an existing valance on your windows.
